Can you tell us about yourself and your blog?
I started blogging as just a hobby in between jobs, reading other fashion blogs, and after awhile I said to myself "Why can't I do this?" and I just ran with it.
What is the most important to you about blogging?
There is so many people around the world involved and it is like a really tight-knit group, and it is just like its own special language.
How long have you been blogging for?
Six and a half years!
Are there any struggles or challenges you have faced within your six plus years of blogging?
There are a lot of small issues. The weather and time are two issues usually.
What has been your biggest failure you have encountered with blogging?
I don't really have a "biggest failure". When I first starting blogging, I didn't really know too much about it, however, I just ran with it. It took about six months to a year to actually get drastic build up. My biggest triumph, though, was probably when a company reached out to me. Coach Handbags actually read my blog and wanted to work on a project with me. It was pretty amazing.
What is your definition of "belief"?
I think having faith and hope in ones self.
Where does your belief come from?
From being a day dreamer, and if I can dream about it, I can definitely do it.
What is your purpose in life? And do you see blogging as a part of this?
To make money! I do see blogging as part of my life as well.
If you get to where you want to be, what is the ideal vision of your future?
I would love to be a stylist for a magazine, or be a celebrity.
If there is one piece of advice about achieving your potential, what would it be?
Just be yourself.
